Photograph thousands of butterflies! Tamron will join us to loan their award-winning lenses and demonstrate creative techniques.
Our special photo shoot will take place inside the largest indoor rainforest conservatory in the United States. The flowers, trees and plants within the atrium have been chosen precisely for the butterfly species within. More than 3,000 butterflies from around the world flutter among the lush tropical plants and flowers, landing for just long enough to capture the perfect photograph.

Marc Morris of Tamron will be there to loan Tamron's award-winning lenses and to demonstrate creative techniques to make your shots memorable. The Butterfly Fairy Model will be there as well!

Marc Morris is a 22 year veteran of the photo-imaging industry, having started as a custom color/chem technician and printer before ever owning his first camera. Since then he’s been fortunate enough to sell cameras to a Beatle and a Yardbird, witness the birth of the mirrorless genre, and work for and with some of the great innovators of the modern era, both manufacturer and creative. He remains a self professed “every-nerd” and loves how the art keeps students of us all.
